Money earned will go towards the One Act Play fund. Please help support them in their fundraiser. Bracelets can be bought from Mrs. FitzSimon or a Drama Student.
Senior Students: Be sure you are getting things lined up for college! Check on college websites for application deadlines and get all paperwork turned in by the deadlines! Be sure that you have asked Ms. McDonough to send transcripts to the colleges you are interested in attending, and that you have taken the required tests for admittance, options are: SAT, ACT, or TSIA. Come by the high school office for testing information. Not sure which one to take? Most 4 year universities need ACT or SAT scores and Jr Colleges need TSI scores or a student to be exempt by their ACT or SAT scores. Most schools require the optional Writing Portion on the SAT and/or ACT, check college websites as all needed information is located there, and ask Ms. McDonough if you need help!
